i did this sketch (cropped) from a photocopy i found, from a magazine i guess, it was dancer Dore Hoyer in the 50's i think. the few photos i've seen from this woman were always so expressive, she was expressive, not the case of my sketch of course.
-black and red ballpen on paper-

super quick sketch with bar

an A4 size-sketch done in less than a couple of minutes with a rectangular 6B cretacolor graphite bar

3 colours of the same work. i don't know the English word for this technique but it's all engraved on the same block of linoleum. may be reduction cut or lost block?? i don't know how it's called in English...

watercolour

today at school we went out to the sidewalk to paint some trees, but i ended up doing this sketch, and which of course couldn't finish. the fact is that most trees in that block were without any leaves as we're still in winter. i'll continue it later i guess since the tree is mostly unfinished yet

they can walk anywhere they like

i made a watercolour from a photo i had from my holidays in 2007. i found a sketch i had done back in 2005, then i thought of making this couple walk on the sand to the house on the peer entrance. i started cutting the sketch then taking some pics to see what it looked like.
unfortunately my winter vacations will be over in august then i won't have enough time to play around with this but start again with school work. but what i will mostly miss is visiting blogs as i'm enjoying so much these last few weeks...

another sketch from a magazine photo. i would like to use my own photos but i don't have photos of people, they're mostly landscape... anyway sometimes it's the only way to practice. i know i should've stuck the paper on a board but i don't always do that...
